Settling Down age

so boys and girls, for those that are older, what point in time did you felt like you were going to settle down with your SO vs when you were still in the "play mode" even if you were with a SO.

When both you actually see a realistic future.
Even though 2 people really like each other, sometimes a future isn't possible.
One can dream.
Those that attempt it anyways most likely end in divorce because they weren't prepared for it.

I was 26 when I met my SO, but if I could have planned it out, I would have been "playing" until I was 30yr.

31yrs - pick SO to be with
33yrs - move in together
34yrs - get engaged
35yrs - get married
36yrs - have kids

having kids later in life avoids having a mid life crisis because you did all your stupid stuff in your 20s and early 30s.....

Sadly, this is true. I've been in this situation before, but it ended kinda sour cuz I just couldn't see myself takin that "future" step with her... as time went by, just more drama came up...

Anyways, back to the topic i don't kno about the age, but for me financial stability is more important then the age

there's no "right" age to settle down. Its different for everyone. Just depends on what people want in their lives. I wanna be married and have kids by the time I'm 30.

I have no idea when I'm going to settle down, maybe just haven't found the right person either.

We bought our own place when I was 27 and she was 24, got married a year after that and had the first kid 2 years after getting married.

I don't think there is a formula though you have to do what you feel is right. I'm not a person who rushes into anything, we were dating for 5 years before getting engaged.

see quasi and Z3guy has an idea of what i'm trying to get @ they have a story of what happened in their lives.

Everyone that says the feel right or anytime, sure. Where's the financial stability when you're 21?

so say you're 19, you feel like you met the one, so you'll settle down? No temptations?

You can't say age isn't involved, if you look as quasi and z3guy, they have that age thing, 5 years met or met her at 26.

Curious on what people's (older) take on it. Can you truly say for those that are past 23 and said you met someone @ 21, you felt like you were going to settle down @ 21?

Path 1:
have a decent job -> have a decent place to live -> see if she's the one you want to spend your life together -> SETTLE

Path 2:
you get her pregnant -> find a good job -> live with your parents until you can afford a place -> SETTLE

Good job is optional for most of the people I know in Path 2 :P
